Mars A Day to Driver (#1)

An excellent bike, but frankly you won't be able to limit yourself to 60 miles on it: before long you'll start taking a longer and longer route to the office - it simply eats distance.

Not that I'm parting with my early (and unrestricted) ZX12R anytime soon..

Recruitment Consultant to all (#6)

I saw a guy doing a wheelie on a motor bike the other day and i tell you what, if I wasn't holding the phone I'd have had his number plate taken down immediately.

Disgraceful driving.

Not changed the pipe on it - seems pointless on a bike with near 200 bhp and ram air, expensive upgrade for a few extra bhp when it's already got more on tap than an 09 Busa.

Akrapovic or Remus will give a good sound, fe extra bhp. I think a Remus can looks better though, once they are burnt in and the skin starts to get that nice burned tone. Lovely.

Pedro if you think an unrestricted ZX12R Ninja makes 105 bhp you are either trolling or know jack Sh1t about bikes. Or both.

No... I was taking about the r1200gs - hence why i thought your answer was about that one.

Mars to Pedro (#12)

Pedro, my apologies for flying off the handle then. I was referring to my ninja. I've been riding for years and it can still scare the bejesus out of me if I get heavy handed with it.

I actually think the beemer is a cracking machine, but it has become a real cliche since Ewan and Charlie.

Jack the Lad to Mars (#13)

I ride a Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R full throttle everywhere I can and its still not fast enough.

The manual says it does 0-180mph in 15.60 seconds but since I took the rev limiter off I have found that I can get up to at least 208mph in this same time.

I also like to do wheelies, burnouts and 360-degree doughnuts in the office car park. I walk into the office every day dressed like the Stig.

Oh hang on, I was dreaming just then. Actually I use the smelly, dirty tube.

Mars A Day to Jack the Lad (#14)

1. The rev limiter is run through the CPU; you need a power commander and fuel remapping to overcome the factory rev limiter, so lots of time on the dyno (expensive) and even worse on a 2009 suzook with the awful 3 way power band switching on the fuel map.

2. Stig wears a Boxer helmet: popular among streetfighter types, but frankly dreadful at speed.

3. Don't know why I'm boring anyone with this - slow morning.

4. I would prefer the tube than riding in leathers in this weather.
